Just got back from our annual 4th of July trip with the Brightwell Family and one of the highlights of the trip (which there were many) was the shopping day that Rob and I did to the War House and Brookhurst Hobbies. Both stores are infamous in the Southern California gaming community and were two stores that I frequented while I lived there. Every time I am in So Cal I try to stop by at least one of these stores.
Now in the past, every time I have had funds and a list of items I was looking for, it never failed that I would not find what I was looking for. Well this trip I decided that I was going to find what I was looking for, using the power of positive thinking. It must have paid off because I found just about everything on my list, so here is what I got on the trip. I found all of this while at Brookhurst Hobbies, unfortunately I could not find anything to spend my money on while at the War House.
|The Haul, except for the Kursk book.|
First up is this Osprey hard back book, now this was not a find, I am just borrowing it to read from Rob. Since there is plans for a Shifting Sands event for Kursk, this was a must read and is a very good book.
